The funeral for a Mormon missionary who died April 12 when his bicycle toppled over into traffic in Taiwan is scheduled for Tuesday at 1 p.m. at the Coldwater Stake Center in North Ogden, Utah.
Elder David Smith Hampton, 18, was serving in the Taiwan Taichung Mission of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at the time of the accident. His mission president told his parents that Hampton was climbing a hill on his bike alongside traffic when his foot slipped and his bike teetered over in front of a car that had no chance to swerve.
A public viewing will be held tonight from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the same stake center.
